Yesterday, Derek Jeter’s #2 jersey was retired by the Yankees, while fans watched in adoration as he said his speech during the Yankees- Astros game.
He was named American League Rookie of the Year in 1992, when he was almost drafted by the Astros; they ended up taking No. 1 Phil Nelvin instead. Derek Jeter retired with 3,465 hits, his 2,747 games played, his 11,195 at-bats, 544 doubles, 358 stolen bases, 14 All-Star Games and five World Series rings.
And is now considered to be one of the greatest Yankees of all time.
